Yep, I quit. I quit my 365 project. I couldn't keep up or rather, I could, but keeping up was adding stress instead of relieving it. I had to let go of my "one creative thing" which had been my mantra when I picked up the project in the first place. But really, do creative types ever do just one creative thing? Of course not. This morning, for instance, I'm making birthday hats. Yesterday, I wrote with my A.P. students. I create every day.
I thought that taking a picture a day would be something to look forward to, something to day dream about, something to enjoy. Perhaps if I shot just anything and didn't tie myself to a theme or challenge. Perhaps if I wasn't so picky. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps. There's always next week, or next month or next year. I am still taking pictures, just not feeling the pressure to post them each day. I suppose my flunked 365 project will go down as a lesson learned (again)that I can't do it all. Or at least I can't do it all, all the time.
